Today's gospel is one of the resurrection

accounts from St Luke’s Gospel. It begins with the disciples recalling their experience on the road to Emmaus and how they recognised Jesus in the breaking of the bread. The gospel continues into another account of the risen Jesus with his disciples. Jesus interrupts the disciples story and greats them with ‘Peace’ yet, in this account, they are terrified by this. Jesus shows them his wounds and Luke tells us that they are full of joy, but they still cant believe it and think it is a ghost. Jesus shows them that he is no ghost as he asks for food and eats fish with them. Jesus then journeys with them back through the scriptures in order to open their minds. He speaks to them compassionately.

Jesus tells the disciples that ‘you are witnesses of these things’. Luke wants to establish an important point, that these disciples are witnesses to the resurrection, they ate with Jesus after his death and he opened their minds. The resurrection accounts in the gospels are not fantasy, they are actual experiences of Jesus’ disciples. Our Easter faith is based on their minds to understand the scriptures, he tells them to go out and preach them in this name.
